    This guy's talent hopefully is his ticket OUT of HELL!!!! and L.A. Reed's comments to him appear as a genuine "Help Me, Help You" situation. I wish him all the best.

    We had tickets to the Miami auditions but did not make it, at the last minute we were informed of an age limit of 12 and up to attend-my kids are 11 and 9- so we gave our tickets away. And although the naked guy incident was not in Miami, I can't understand why the producers allowed the/his public indecency to go on for as long as it did in an auditorium full of young people JUST 12 years or older. I wonder if "naked guy" was even charged (LEWD & LASCIVIOUS) in the presence of minors.:nono2::mad::eek2:

    Well there you go, an obvious plant designed for shock ratings. I think it kind of backfired though since in every other case on AI, they had security drag the nut off immediately. Thus it was a transparent inside-job hoax.

    Note how not one of the judges said "Where the %^&$ was security!?" That proves the fix was in. And Paula is such a terrible actor. "Cough cough..." Nobody does that.

    So was it CBS that was raked over the coals for the Janet Jackson/Superbowl wardrobe malfunction? I haven't heard anyone slamming FOX with a fine or anything else for that matter, just a thought. Granted, Janet's boob was not CENSORED in time due to the game being live, X-Factor is taped and although we at home saw a big X style censor bar, the LIVE audience(minors included) saw the whole package:eek2: Not right,.......not right.:nono2: They even taped people leaving, in addition to Paula choking/coughing/I don't know what???? You are right Maruuk so planned, so planted!!! But to what end?

    I found an article about the incident. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...-group-xxx-performance.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

    FWIW, the guy claimed he wasn't fully exposed.

    They do anything for ratings. There is no morality or ethics in Hollywood, it's all about the Benjamins.

    Well, I now declare that I officially HATE this show. The "host" is a nimrod, the acts are no better than Idol (probably worse), and it has none of the fun of The Voice.

    Ughh! Horrible!

    No better than Idol? Melanie Amaro, Drew, and Josh are all better than about every Idol contestant ever except maybe Carrie Underwood & Kelly Clarkson.

    The chick that Simon booted and then brought back is the only one IMO that can sing. Well, the guy that looks like the Abominable Snoman is pretty good too.

    Not a fan of the others.

    I'll tell you what though, just about any singer on The Sing Off would win Idol and the X Factor. If you like listening to good voices, that's the show. And Ben Folds is either a lunatic or a genuis.

    It shouldn't bug me, but that "host" gives me the creeps. Just seems nasty (and not in a good way).

    The Lip-syncing during the group performances is laughable. The backing tracks during the 2 elimination performances was overwhelmiing. Maybe it's because I've avoided a majority of the mentors post performance comments but I've yet to hear any criticism whatsoever of contestants off-key singing or awkward stumbling around the stage. The only mentor criticism I've heard so far has been directed at each other, ie: song choice, wardrobe, stage set-up.
    There are several very talented performers on his show but since the very beginning, it's obvious that Simon and the other mentors have been doing everything they can to make sure that each and every one of the contestants are seen in the best possible light. It just come's off as a little manipulative when, in an effort to influence viewers, obvious performance flaws are not addressed by the mentors. I know that judges on these types of shows have allways tried to influence viewers, but this show has taken it to a new level.

    I completely agree about the lack of comments on the pitch. That is a very basic skill and if you don't have that, there's no sense in continuing.

    It's all melting down now--they just got caught lip-synching and faking most of the backup singing and Simon is now in damage control mode JUSTIFYING it! Pathetic.

    The kids were way better than the slick Motown hacks, but the idiot judges went with the hacks.

    That host guy is clearly from Skynet.

    This thing is a train wreck, but there is no question some of the talent destroys that Glee crap that was on AI last year.

    I thought they made the right decision. Intensity should of never made it this far. I love the show and am extremely happy with the level of talent on the show. It will be interesting to see the order they leave the show.

    How can you stand Aguilera? Good god, what a bulbous bleach-blonde bobblehead--with terminal melissma to boot. The Voice gives me a headache with all the manufactured hysteria and hyping going on constantly.

    Regarding Intensity vs. Stereo Hoggz, the SH are just another bland, slick, soulless retro Motown lip-synch machine. Utterly without individual style or distinction. And as Simon correctly stated, in that last performance, the kids blew the pros away.

    I would have flushed Stacy (who just got exposed as a fraud--she's a pro from way back) or that horrible little fat girl who sings like she's doing "Annie" all the time. Or that incredibly untalented Marcus Canty. Can't sing in tune, has zero charisma, and an overall weak voice. Why is he still around?

    Yeah, pretty embarrassing. I think it's only in the group numbers.

    They did it as well @ some of the performances @ the judges' houses. I'm a musician and i could tell the sound was recorded in a studio, not from the various outdoor locations.
